I have had my testosterone checked and have been told mine is normal. Do I need treatment?

Normal vs Optimal

  • Normal ranges for males are 250 – 1000 ng/dl
  • These ranges are not age specific
  • A male with 250 – 300 ng/dl is considered the same as a male at 900 – 1000 ng/dl

Example of Men at These Ranges

Testosterone of 300 could be:

  • Poor muscle tone
  • Flabby
  • Tired
  • Low motivation
  • Poor performance in the bedroom
  • Increased risk for heart disease, diabetes, and cancer

Testosterone of 900 could be:

  • Trim
  • Good muscle tone
  • Energetic
  • Mentally sharp
  • Good libido and quality
  • Decreased risk factors for heart disease, diabetes, and cancer
